Alphabet scooped up Fitbit a few months ago, but so far we haven’t really seen much come out of that.

But that doesn’t mean things aren’t happening in […]

Cities in every part of the world have systems that allow people to rent bicycles to travel from place-to-place. The benefits vary for everyone, but I think it’s best if you’d like to avoid mass transit and enjoy the city around you. My recent trip to New York City proved to me that a lot of people really take advantage of Citi Bike, the United States’ largest bike sharing system. At each block, someone was coming down the street on one of these rented bikes. So it’s clearly becoming a rising form of transportation. Moovit, the local transit app that started focusing on smaller means of travel, is proud to announce Bike Share integration in more than 100 cities worldwide.
Moovit’s addition of Bike Share means that you don’t have to jump between apps in order to rent a bike and get pedaling around a city. Directions to the bike sharing hub are provided in the same nature that Moovit gets you to any other place.
Here’s how to use Moovit’s Bike Share:
Over twenty-five new cities are also being added to Moovit. Mumbai (India), Stuttgart (Germany), Patra (Greece), Clermont-Ferrand (France), Andorra la Vella (Andorra), Puebla & Mérida (México), Apucarana, Parnaíba, Caxias do Sul & Campina Grande (Brazil), Ferrol, Toledo, Murcia, Logroño (Spain) and fourteen Canadian cities are included in the update. So you can travel in almost 1,000 cities worldwide and join the 28 million people that are already using Moovit.
